How do you turn off "auto focus" on the Sony Handycam? When we film fireworks or concerts, it constantly changes focus & the image becomes blurry.

My sony handycam dcr-hc65 won't focus up close. gets very blurry



The most likely cause for this is a zoom or focus lens out of place or impaired in some way and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

I cant seem to get the manual focus to work on my vx2000


Are you sliding the switch from "Auto" to "Man" first? The focus switch is located at about the mid-point of the camera, just forward of the flip out LCD. The focus ring is the larger of the two lens rings, the one farthest towards the front of the camera. The smaller ring behind that one is the zoom ring. Also, make sure something isn't inadvertently pressing down the "Push Auto" button immediately below the focus switch - that can force the camera to autofocus even if in "Man" (manual) focus mode. Hope that helps!
